New facility to focus on Materials
A collaboration between Oxford University, Diamond Light Source, and Johnson Matthey will create a world-class materials characterisation facility at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, Oxfordshire.
Prof Brian Eyre
Professor Brian Eyre CBE, FRS, FREng

It is with sadness that the department announces the death of one of our most respected and eminent colleagues. Brian had a distinguished career in both the UKAEA and in academia and made important contributions in nuclear technology, including pioneering electron microscopy studies of irradiation damage in metals and alloys and the study of fracture in metals and alloys. 

David Cockayne Centre for Electron Microscopy
On 17th July the Department held an opening ceremony for the newly refurbished “David Cockayne Centre for Electron Microscopy” showcasing five new electron microscopes which have been installed this year significantly expanding the capabilities of the Department’s Electron Microscopy and Microanalysis facility.
